Making real food understandable (and the transition to it achievable) is a huge priority for me as a blogger. Coming from a background of being raised on primarily processed foods and having to both learn to acquire a taste for real food, as well as learn to cook it, has given me a genuine desire to want to offer resources to help make the transition easier for others than it was for me. Over the past month and a half, we’ve been writing about “Real […]

There are very few things that I would consider important enough to put in the crazy expensive FedEx package that we’re having shipped to Argentina. My Apple Valley Shampoo Bars? They made the cut. Seriously, I am in love with my shampoo bars.

21 Days to a More Disciplined Life (plus 100 free copies!)

The problem is that my exuberance often exceeds my capability to follow through. Time and again, my lofty plans fall flat. Over the […]

A common sentiment when it comes to eating real, whole, from-scratch foods is that (while we know they’re good for us) they can be time consuming to prepare.

As I shared in my “day in the life” post this week, my life is often busy, and at times, it’s downright hectic. There are many […]
